Summary: A study of educational buildings defines a series of principles important when planning and designing objects for the system. An analysis of the curriculum and methods of education defines the framework for possible pedagogical situations and establishes the necessary space, functional, technical and hygienic prerequisites of the educational space. Basic elements have been elaborated for programing, planning and designing of necessary areas in nurseries, kindergartens and primary schools. An inventory of educational building has been made, categorizing the objects according to their purpose, capacity, author, location, time of construction, and source of data. The results of this research are useful for architectural education and for architectural and engineering practice, and present a basis for the further promotion of educational environment as well as for future analyses of interactions of alternative programmes and adjacent constructed environment.

Keywords: education, architecture of educational objects, programme - space, space - user, nurseries and kindergartens, primary schools, secondary schools, colleges, educational environment, alternative programme, new spacial models

Research goals: Changes in overall social conditions are reflected on the changes in the system of education which is in keeping with the modern principles of education in the united Europe and in the world. The educational system should propose programmes whose quality,flexibility and comprehensiveness provide for the plurality ofcurricula, individual choice and creative expression. Thecurricula serve as a basis for indicators of space, functional and design research of architectonically-spatial conceptual models. The objective of model analyses and starting premises is to find criteria for optimum planing, programming, designing and functional organization of educational space. The research includes the complete educational system, from nurseries to universites. Whithin each segment of the education system, specific forms of the space and the social standard of the students should also be analyzed. The proposed research "Alternative Spacial Models for Primary Education" is very significant and stimulating as it attempts not only to reestablish the broken continuity of alternative education in Croatia, but also to initiate the introduction of new educational and spacial programmes and find appropriate spacial and functional criteria for the design and creation of individual alternative models. The plurality of educational programmes and methods must also be followed by an analysis of the needed spaces either newly established or continued.
